As South Korea spends five days officially mourning the sailors who perished in the sinking of the Cheonan, the nation and world are waiting for the official cause to be announced.
Over the weekend Defense Minister Kim Tae-young said that a torpedo was the most likely cause setting off more speculation about “who” would fire a torpedo in the Yellow Sea and why.
The call for calm calculation and consensus seems to be most common among the mainstream but there are certainly those demanding a “stern” response as President Lee said in a tearful speech more than a week ago.
Yet the problem remains what to do and how to do it. With the funeral of the fallen to take place on Thursday, there is a belief that the collective voice calling for an answer (and response) will rise.
Now that the U.S. has come out and said it believes it was a torpedo as well one can only expect that something will come to a head sooner than later.
